Leinster Junior Cup
Super sub Darren Waldron hit a 104 minute winner as Dingle United made it six wins on the bounce to progress to the third round of the Leinster Junior Cup.
Dingle dominated their cup clash against Valeview Shankill for the most part, but were reliant on an extra time strike to see them through in the prestigious competition.
The top flight side made seven changes from the team that defeated Kilmore in the league last weekend, but created chances from the off.
David Murray had an early chance saved before he had an effort he felt had crossed the line waved away by the referee.
Long range efforts from Adam Bell and Alan Murray were both saved soon after while Stephen Haddock lashed over from 20 yards .
On the half an hour mark the hosts were punished for the lack of ruthlessness in front of goal as Valeview scored from a corner and went ahead.
The lead didn’t last too long as within a minute the home side were level Alan O’Neill split the defence allowing Adam O’Keeffe to finish calmly into the bottom corner.
Dingle could have taken a lead into the break but O’Neill twice headed over come set piece time.
The Premier A side continued to have more of the ball after the turn, but Valeview proved resilient and defended admirably.
The host did introduce the likes of Gavin Dowling, Darren Waldron, Dean Murray and Lee Lismore, but while they had an impact with Dowling particularly impressive the hosts couldn’t find a winner before 90 minutes elapsed.
Alan Murray Jr had an effort cleared off the line in the first half of extra time much to the frustration of the home support, but with penalties looming Waldron volley home to secure his side a deserved win.
